Bourbon Slush is a Game Changer
Serves 10 Hands-on 10 minutes Total 10 hours, 10 minutes, including 8 hours chilling
ll I have to do is take one sniff of a glass of bourbon and I’m transported to a cool, fall day in Starkville at Davis Wade Stadium. I can hear the crowds and feel the excitement. Daddy never missed a game and neither did I. This drink is subtle and absolutely drinkable, and it will quickly become your most favorite game day or party go-to. It couldn’t be any easier either, plus it freezes beautifully. You can make it months ahead so it’s ready when you are.
- 6 cups hot brewed tea
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 (12-ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate
- 6 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate (from 1 [12-ounce] can)
- 2 cups bourbon
Combine the hot tea and sugar in a heatproof bowl; stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the lemonade concentrate and orange juice concentrate; stir until blended. Let stand until cool, about 1 hour. Stir in the bourbon. Pour the bourbon mixture into a large freezer-safe container, and freeze until almost firm, about 8 hours or overnight. Let stand at room temperature until partially thawed, about 1 hour. Spoon into glasses, and serve immediately.
